Remove logic from fillable form

Post by rob@wilqo.com »

We downloaded a fillable PDF from a US government website.

The form includes some logic such that, for example, when a user clicks a checkbox, 4 other check boxes automatically get populated.

When I open the PDF in PDF-XChange and go into Form Edit mode, I can't find where that auto-fill logic is so that I can delete it.

I've selected the checkbox and viewed properties and the ACTIONS are all <Empty>

I've looked in the JaveScript Console and it is blank.

Where else should I be looking?

Hi, rob@wilqo.com

thanks for the detailed post. JavaScript can also be document level, access them from the document Properties (ctrl+d):

If there is nothing there maybe send us the file to look into?

Thanks!
Nothing in the doc level either.

I did solve the problem!

They have multiple elements with the same field names.

If I give each a unique name, they no longer "auto fill".

SOLVED!
